We stayed in the one bedroom unit and were impressed with cleanliness of unit; close location to supermarket and friendly staff. Very tidy motel with easy parking, pay TV, good kitchen facilities and good shower. Short drive to town.

Stopped in for one night while touring the South Island, and had a very pleasant stay. The people running the lodge were very friendly and welcoming, and its position is quite close to everything. Although its situated on the main road of the town, and the room we stayed in was right out the front it was still very quiet,... More

Arrived at this quaint little motor inn. The host was very friendly and welcoming. He gives you a personal escort to your room to explain everything and takes the time to highlight the attractions of the area. The rooms are spotless, quiet and comfortable. More than enough space for a family and a great kitchen. Bathroom was large and sparkling... More

I have stayed at the Gables before but this trip I had a longer stay of 9 nights as always the owner was friendly and helpful. The units are clean and well maintained. Great Sky channel coverage. Super Market, Recreation Hotel which has great meals and the swimming pool are all very close by. Facilities including BBQ available for all... More

The room was comfortable, bright and very clean. We were pleased with our stay. The owner was accommodating when we needed something printed from email. Our mistake was staying multiple nights because the town of Greymouth isn't the town to stay for longer than one night. We used the laundry facilities at the motel and we got what we needed... More

We spent a night here just last week. It was a very clean and well-appointed unit, handy to a supermarket and on the main road, yet still very quiet. The biggest advantage this motel has is its very friendly owner/ manager, who walked us to our unit and even ensured we knew how to operate the television. He greeted us... More

We stayed at the Gables twice, one in a Spa unit, and once in a King bed Unit. The rooms are very nicely furnished and the the hosts clearly have great attention to detail, including laminated guides for the TV and Set top boxes. The hosts were very very helpful, giving us tips on places to eat, and places to... More

Greymouth itself is boring and not a tourist town, thus the lower prices in accommodation. However, when driving through the area you must stay in this lodge. It is wonderful, spacious and the inn keeper is nice and helpful. The small tourist town of Hokitika is only about 30 min up the road. We stayed in Greymouth as we came... More

We were given a very pleasant welcome to this well appointed and efficiently run establishment, and enjoyed a peaceful nights rest. I foolishly left a hat behind which was kindly forwarded to my next port of call. I would highly recommend the Gables Motel.
